GARIN VERIS SPEAKING TO THE CHILTON CLUB OF BOSTON
In January, former Patriot Garin Veris spoke to an audience of 100 at The Chilton Club in Boston. Garin spoke to the members about his Patriots career and life beyond the game. The Chilton Club was founded in 1910 by ten prominent women from Boston. They wanted a club in Boston, patterned on the Colony Club in New York, that was more “interesting and exciting” than existing social club options for women at the time. The new club was to be a genial, graceful retreat in the city, featuring restaurants, bedrooms, an assembly room, and a library. The ten founders soon expanded in number to forty-three Charter members. Invitations were extended and approximately three hundred ladies became the first members of the Chilton Club.
The Club has a storied past and has had as members many women who have occupied important roles in the City of Boston as philanthropists, artists, academics, and professionals. Its records reflect the history and social development of Boston during the 20th and 21st century.
Today the Club promotes friendship and provides opportunities for shared social, intellectual and cultural pursuits. It remains an active social club for both women and men.
